As with the Borg Invasion described in Destiny by David Mack, the official Pocket novels following that pivotal trilogy did little to reveal the adventures of the crew of Deep Space Nine during the rise of the Federation's latest antagonist, the Typhon Pact. Rough Beasts of Empire by David R George III followed Sisko on USS Robinson, while A Singular Destiny by Keith RA DeCandido followed Dax on USS Aventine. But what about everyone else?
Hence another season of 22 episodes, taking storylines inspired by those and other books, and revealing for the first time the critically important actions taken by Kira, Ro, Bashir, Tenmei, Shar, Nog, Cenn, Evik, Candlewood and Matthias in this post-Borg Federation. How does a civilised society respond to such horrifically uncivilised events? And what if unscrupulous parties should try to take advantage of the Federation's wounded state?
